I changed a lot of stuff about this recipe to suit what I had in my kitchen/my taste: I used chopped bamboo shoots instead of chickpeas, omitted the lemon zest, used onion powder instead of green onions, used chopped finely chopped dried mango instead of cranberries. The dressing I think turned out a bit too lemon flavored and tangy so I added honey and more yogurt to dilute it a bit. All in all, it was a good, flavorful salad and I would definitely make it again just the way I did!
I made this for 'zaar tag, with some changes. I added chicken, and omitted one of the cans of chickpeas. I also added a chicken stock cube (for veggies, I'm sure a veggie stock cube would be fine) to the quinoa as it cooked because I thought it would be bland. Because I didn't have any dried cranberries I substituted raisins, which my family said they would have preferred. Made the dressing as directed, and it turned out great. So,if you are still happy to call this the same recipe, my family loved it and have said they'd like me to make it again!
I made a half recipe of this for the two of us following your recipe exactly apart from using the full amount of cumin in the dressing. I mixed the dressing through the salad rather than drizzling it over and that worked fine. This contains some of my favourite things (cranberries, quinoa, chickpeas, yoghurt and curry flavour etc) so I was always going to LOVE it. Thanks for posting, I'll be making this healthy recipe again.
